Coves are required for all above ground swimming pools to prevent liners from ballooning out under the walls as a result of water weight. Without a cove, liners will become damaged through excessive stretching and premature wear and tear. While coves can be made from sand or dirt, such methods are time-consuming and simply not ideal. In addition to being more convenient than sand or dirt coves, swimming pool coves will not wash away and also will not hold moisture that could potentially damage the metal components of your pool. Pool coves provide an excellent and easy way to significantly extend the lifespan of your pool liner.
The pool cove offers a superior solution, providing an easy way to quickly install an effective cove that will provide you with remarkable results. Constructed from high-quality yet lightweight materials, above ground pool coves are available as Peel N' Stick Coves and Track Coves. Peel N' Stick pool coves feature self-adhesive backs for easy and secure installation while Track Coves simply snap onto the track at the bottom of the pool.
•How to find a hole or puncture in a liner:
– Determine if something is puncturing the pool liner.
•Slowly drop food coloring around the pool's ladder or stair strip, skimmer faceplate, and return faceplate.If there is a hole around these areas, you will see the food coloring being sucked into the hole. If the hole isn't near the stair strip, ladder, or skimmer or return faceplates, you will need to find the hole elsewhere in the liner. This process may be difficult, because many liners have a design on the bottom and sides of the pool floor and walls.
